Original Florence Walk & Uffizi Tour
Joined the Original Florence Walk (29 Sept 2012) and the Uffizi Tour (30 Sept 2012) after seeing reviews on Trip Advisor. Didn't disappoint. Learnt so much from enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides (sorry, can't remember names but english lady and american guy). Worth every penny. Thank you guys.

Florence and The David
We took two tours with Brenda and she was terrific! We would definitely use Artviva again. Brenda was personable, very knowledgeable, and made the tours as fun as they were informative.Jackie and Bob in Glastonbury, Connecticut

Yesterday we joined a 3 hours tour in Firenze with a guide named Klaas (I am sorry if I misspelled his name). He was fantastic, we really enjoyed and learned a lot new facts. Great, great, great! I highly recommend to everybody!Thank you : )Sergio and Pavla

Great bicycle tour of Tuscany
We took a bike tour with Jessica as our guide. She did a great job. We rode around Florence first, seeing the sights. Jessica explained many of them when we took brief breaks. Then we rode to the hills of Tuscany. She kept us moving, but made sure everyone stayed together, not pushing anyone too hard. Again, we took breaks and she described the buildings histories. Then some wine-tasting and olive oil tasting at a private winery overlooking the valley. We rode to see Galileo's house, then to an overlook that gave us a chance for more photos, and then back to Florence. Jessica did a wonderful job, and we highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Florence!

Florence Walking Tour
First of all, the transfer booked thur Artviva, arrived at our cruise ship was right on time and took us straight to the Florence Artviva office. Our walking guide, Sylvia, is an art history graduate and was great. She was on time, took us where we wanted, knew everything and told great stories. We were enthralled and had a great time. thanks again.

I took the Cooking Class and Market tour (in San Lorenzo Market). It was awesome! The market had the most incredible fresh ingredients, and the most amazing seafood selection I have ever seen. The cooking class was extremely professional, and the lunch afterwards was great! I recommend this class for anyone.Mark

A truly life changing experience
Absolutely amazing.Words can hardly express how much we enjoyed our experience with ArtViva! From the minute we stepped in their lovely office, we felt attended, looked after and taken care of. The friendly staff advised us in detail of what would suit our tastes and knowledge best, and as they have so many beautiful tours to choose from, that help was very appreciated. Florence's cultural richness can be overwhelming, but relying on ArtViva made everything easy and utterly enjoyable for us.The small group walking tour of Florence exceeded all expectations. Our guide Paul was tremedous: a true Florence insider, with amazing knowledge of arts and culture, engaging story telling and great local tips you won't find in a guide book. The memories of the tour will stay with me and my sister for many many years. Booking with ArtViva is the best single thing you could do to have the ultimate Florence experience.Thank you, ArtViva.
